Randal L. Schwartz and Tom Phoenix
(2nd Edition, O'Reilly, 1997)

I am told that this book is full of various jokes. Here are two examples, sent to me by Zed Lopez:
Benjamin Franklin, quoted (and even double-quoted)     225
Page 225 includes three unattributed quotations as examples in a program. Two are from Franklin; however, Franklin is not explicitly mentioned.
Scooby Doo, pronouncing “Windex”     166
Page 166 mentions the “rindex” function.
